Dunluce Castle is dramatically located close to a headland that plunges straight into the sea, along the North Antrim coast. It was the headquarters of the MacDonnell Clan. Constantly fought over, the castle eventually succumbed to the power of nature, when part of it fell into the sea one stormy night in 1639. It was abandoned shortly afterwards. Dunluce Castle is regarded as the possible inspiration for Cair Paravel in C.S. Lewis’ Chronicles of Narnia.
